Balkan cuisine isn't something I've ever tried before but recently I went to Djerdan on West 38th street and had a really great meal. They have wonderful dishes like goulash and stuffed peppers and cabbage but their star attraction are the bureks. Bureks are phyllo dough pies stuffed with things like cheese, spinach, and ground beef. They are served, usually, with cups of a delicious yogurt that you can pour over the bureks but also drink. They're really, really good.

Considering that there aren't that many good restaurants in the Garment district, Djerdan is a real find. It's not too expensive or crowded so it's not too hard to get a table.

But don't just take my word for it. See what New York magazine had to say.
